inspiration visited me tonight

There I was in class, facing the challenge of helping an actor get better by helping her to see her character's situation more clearly.

I have faced the particular challenge I was facing in this case many times before. But for some reason, today, I went about it differently. I don't know why I did that. And it probably wasn't the first time I tried this new approach. But tonight was the night that I went the way I did AND I saw the potential it implied: how many new possibilities it opened up.

I remembered how years ago, someone told me about a teacher doing something along these lines, but it hadn't made any sense to me then.

The past and the future converged in the now.

I looked around at my students who were smiling and laughing while they were learning and getting better.

Outside, the horns honked for the Giants. The night was soft and cool.
